Propose Webinar

Calling all Dance Educators!

Please check back in the spring for another opportunity to apply to present a webinar

Is there a topic in dance education you are particularly passionate about? Do you have experience or expertise that other dance teachers may benefit from? Reach and inspire other dance educators across the country through an online webinar! 

In alignment with our commitment to Justice, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion work, NDEO is currently seeking new and diverse perspectives for future online webinars. 

Interested presenters may submit proposals on any topic directly related to dance education or related fields (arts administration, culturally relevant teaching practices, studio management, somatics, dance science, current events/hot topics in dance education, etc.) Examples of past webinars have included:

  • Undoing White Supremacy and Responding to Trauma in Dance: How One Community Dance Program is Adapting
  • Teaching Dance Virtually to Students with Disabilities
  • Embodying Latinidad: Diverse Dance Practices of Intersectional Latinx/a/o Artists in the U.S.
  • Disrupting Gender Assumptions: Challenging Cis-Heteronormative Narratives in Dance
  • Dance Education for All Bodies
  • Are Dance Competitions Disrupting the Power and Progress of Dance Education?

Interested presenters are encouraged to review past webinars to get a sense of the scope of topics that have been covered.
